Video - New Sako TRG 22 in 260 Remington

Video of the Sako TRG 22 in 260 Remington with Hensoldt 4-16x56 NH1 scope, my first long range rifle. Received it last Friday, shot it on Saturday, and put together a quick video. Click on link below.

Enjoy!

    That is a very nice rig. The video is very well done also. Welcome to LRH.com. Hope you stick around and share some more vids of that caliber (pun intended). How well was it grouping at 960yds?

    Thanks Liltank.

    I had mostly 2-3 inch groups at 550 yards. 960 yards was considerably more difficult as the winds kept shifting and I had no spotter. Given the lush surroundings I could not spot my misses, only my hits. Took a few rounds to get on target, would make several consecutive hits, until the winds changed again. The consecutive hits seemed to group around 6 inches. Should have put out a bigger target (only 15x25 inches) since I was solo with wind.

    What lens did you use for the first parts of the video? I just ordered a 50mm 1.4 for my T1i - looks like you used one similar.
